Oh My Darlin'

...Clementine!  I love the Clementine fabric collection by Heather Bailey.  The colors are soft and pretty, but the orange and ginger colors thrown in keeps the whole look from being overly precious.  I'm so glad I finally got around to making this quilt.  I came up with the design (I'm calling it Posy) way back in November, but it just sat in my sketch book, waiting for fabric inspiration to strike.


My machine is due for servicing, and I'm working to finish this one last quilt before taking it in.  I've put the service off for a few weeks, waiting to take it in when we are traveling so I won't miss it too much.

If all goes to plan, I can finish this quilt then take it in, and by the time we get home, she'll be all ready to go.  I do have a lovely backup machine that I use for piecing (an Elna Quilter's Dream), inherited from my great aunt, but since free motion quilting depends so much on the "feel" of the machine, I save my quilting for my Bernina.

Now that the top is done, I can't wait to finish the quilt and release the pattern!  You can bet I'll be working on it while we're away.

  6. You've got a hst block that needs to be turned on the bottom edge of the quilt - at least that's what it looks like to me. Thought you'd like to know. It's all good though!!!!

  18. Oh my gosh I love this - and it's not even in my favorite colors, so that means it really is special!
    I love how the light and dark colors make some of the circles fade to the background, and makes other crosses fade to the background. wonderful...
